Poor Communication Kills:
"About half of everything bad that happens in Tales of Symphonia or Tales of the Abyss could be averted if not for the characters’ refusal to explain certain things in order to keep certain information from the player, even when it is extremly obvious and logical that they should do so. The general hierarchy of screwedness is as follows:
- "Don’t worry about it" - You should be very worried.
- "It’s not important" - It’s extremely important.
- "It’s nothing." - It’s definitely something. And said something is a thing that needs to be shared with the rest of the group. Now.
- "But could that mean?… No, impossible." - Yes it does and no it’s not.
- "I’ll tell you later." - They’ll tell you after a sizeable portion of the world’s population has died as a result of them not sharing this information."
So we had a project in astronomy to sell a constellation that had to include a rubric full of requirements. This is what my best friend submitted instead.. He got an A.

1. Do not hate them for it. They are on a journey too. 2. Understand that sometimes you will be a bandage caressing a temporary wound or you will be a pinnacle of permanency rooted deeply in their heart. Accept that you do this to people too. 3. Do not step on your feet trying to find a rhythm you are not meant to follow. 4. Do not let it harden you: continue to nurture, continue to love. 5. People use words as anchors to latch onto bits of you and when they leave remind yourself that the sea never bled itself dry because a ship left it. 6. Write the nastiest letter and burn it. 7. Yes, they may have illuminated pieces of you that you were unaware existed. But now you do and they are not the last person to remind you. 8. Dizzy yourself with everything you love, like dancing in the greenhouse to horrid pop songs or reading Haruki Murakami. 9. Set all that anger ablaze, you are wasting your time sifting through it. 10. Internalize the fact that you were still breathing before you met them. 11. Forgive them.
A lot of bumps in my birthday plans today but without a doubt seeing old friends randomly on the ferry and talking for the next hour like old times really helped out. I’m really happy with the friends I’ve made in my life through highschool and college. I really just need to weed out the ones who don’t give two shits.
I respect those people who get a lot done on their days off cause I am the absolute opposite and do nothing all day whenever I can
